The Elderspell Discussion

Thanks KayneMarco! I assumed the Oaths would be weak. The Elderspell doesn't work with my deck if no one else is playing walkers. I'll have to add those 3 cards.

The 3 I would remove myself are:

The 3 I would add would be:

Circle of Despair would be great as well but the only thing I could think of removing for it is one of your proliferate cards. That’s up to you on that one. The Wanderer is more of a meta dependent card. If your playgroup uses a lot of direct damage then I would add it. Dawnstrider is the weakest link of all of them so if you feel the need to add it you’ll have to figure out that one. Other than that I would definitely add the 3 and if possible the circle as well. They truly are game winners, at least they really work for my walker deck. I used to run Atraxa as well but I switched to Sisay, Weatherlight Captain once that set was released.

KayneMarco, out of those 5 cards, which ones would you add? I'm leaning towards Spike Weaver because it fits with the Atraxa proliferate ability, or Knight-Captain of Eos because of the synergy with Elspeth planeswalkers. What should I remove to include these cards? Take out one of my other removal cards, like Duneblast, Supreme Verdict, or The Elderspell? Or do I have some weak cards that don't quite fit the deck?

Took this version to the National Championships at Cancon and went 3-4, so fairly happy with that.

Got some free wins with Blood Moon so that was good, and had some super close games, including paying 8 life with Sylvan Library to be able to draw and cast Vengevine and Bloodbraid Elf, which cascded into The Elderspell when my opponent had 4 Planeswalkers on the board (sadly The Elderspell got hit by Force of Will).

The Elderspell is really good for sideboarding. You should also include graveyard hate, and artifact hate to your sideboard

Hellos, I think your deck is pretty well put together. Have you considered Revival / Revenge or Gideon Blackblade ? Gideon has gone down significantly in price and feels like he would be a good fit for your deck.

If you're looking for more removal, consider Despark , The Elderspell (sideboard), or even Witch's Vengeance .

Since you're pretty creature heavy you can also try Deafening Silence , since you can still play your Mortify on your opponent's turn.

I think you deck is going to get more tools in the upcoming set with the return of the "Devotion" and "Escape" (works great with Surveil) mechanics.

The Elderspell is great against planeswalkers, but that is going to be tough in your deck. Dreadbore might be a better answer.

Hello hydrothermia, I've been testing your build-up and made some changes:

1) Replaced the 2 Experimental Frenzy for 2 Cavalcade of Calamity , since you have so many 1 power creatures

2) Replaced 3 Mortify for 3 Murderous Rider to deal with PWs or Questing Beast

3) On the sideboard I added 3 Noxious Grasp and 2 The Elderspell for some more removal in Bo3

Maybe you can modify based on this also?
